- Are you stressed by the way your dog behaves when you're out in public?
- Does he pull on a leash?
- Does he bark at things that startle him—strangers, kids on skateboards, deliverymen, people coming in and out of buildings, etc.?
- Wouldn't it be nice to have him walk calmly on a loose leash by your side, to sit politely to greet strangers, or, for safety's sake, to stop when he comes to a corner? To sit calmly in the elevator when people enter?
- And how about eliminating on cue? It's not as difficult as it sounds, but what a great behavior to have on a cold and wet rainy day!!
These are all behaviors that can be established while out walking. Let Jay start the process by accompanying you and your dog on a walk and showing you how to identify what triggers the behavior you want to change. He will show you force-free methods to change that behavior, thus building the skills that are needed to make excursions out into the world fun and pleasant for both of you!
